How are ganglia treated?
A ganglion can spontaneously rupture and go away. Other treatment
options include removal of the ganglion fluid with a
needle and syringe (aspiration) with or without an injection of cortisone
medication. Occasionally, the entire ganglion is resected with
surgery. People with a persisting or recurring ganglion should be evaluated for signs of systemic forms of arthritis, such as rheumatoid arthritis.
